Agriculture will never be a huge part of the Barbados economy, but it needs to be much bigger than it is now. Every society must try to feed itself. Local food is especially important for tourism, because a substantial number of higher-end travelers place high priority on uniquely-local food.
The next lecture in the lunchtime series will be delivered on Friday 2010-August-06 by Mr. Leroy McClean, Consul-General for Barbados at Toronto, at the “Errol Barrow Gallery”, DLP Headquarters, ‘Kennington’, George Street, Belleville, St. Michael.
